What was the best thing anybody said to you after you had your first baby?
Say that to new moms you know.
What was the best thing anybody did for you? Was it a friend that came over to scrub your toilets instead of coming over to hold your cute new baby? A meal dropped by without a visit attached? A card? A kind word when you nursed in public even though it was new and still uncomfortable for you?
Was there ever a mom that listened to you complain without trying to solve your problem or make it bad or *wrong*?
Listen this way to other mothers.
Was there ever a mom that told you early on (when you thought you could do nothing right) “YOU’VE SO TOTALLY GOT THIS”?
Say this to other mothers.
Was there ever another mother that told you “Perfect is overrated” and “Don’t worry, when it comes to babies, there is no such thing as NORMAL”?
Remind other mother of this too.
Today, if you see another mother out and about, be kind. Smile at her even though you do not know her. Be for her what another mother was (or could have been) for you in those first few fragile days, weeks, months… years.
We are more connected than we are separate. Make a difference for another mother TODAY.
“We can do no great things; only small things with great love.”
